Description

Jeremy Wade has caught an unparalleled array of outsize and outlandish fish from challenging locations all over the world - goliath tigerfish from the Congo, arapaima from the Amazon, 'giant devil catfish' from the Himalayan foothills . . .
As his catches attract increasing public attention, many people ask him how they can improve their own fishing results.
This book is his reply. Sparse on the details of technique, it's about the simple, fundamental principles - a mindset for success. Part science, part art, and part elusive something else, this, he says, is within every angler's ability to develop.
How to Think Like a Fishis the distillation of a life spent fishing. Along the way readers will learn when to let instinct override logic. Why less time can bring better results than more. Which details are vital and which may be irrelevant. And how a 'non-result' can be a result.
Thoughtful and funny, brimming with wisdom and adventure, here is the book for any angler - novice or old hand - who wants to catch the fish that have so far eluded them.
